I've been around lawyers and the sort all my life. The other gentleman is right. There are some good "locaters" around the states. But, you also have the address and a receipt showing payment I assume? There is a record of the area where it payment was received whether a cc, check, or mo. There is a record somewhere. Now, I may be a back woods redneck (compliments!!!), but I do know that the law is probably interested in internet things of this sort. I had a case of postal fraud, but it was under the prosecutable amount unfortuantely. How many folks have been ripped off by this jerk???? 4 that I have heard of. Don't remember where you would get in touch with the first ones I heard of. But there is you and Mr. Smith. What state was the jerk in? Try contacting the state police, or prosecuters office in the city where payment was mailed (if mailed) for a first step. Find out what the laws and requirements are for this. If payment was sent through the mail and not a credit card, then it is mail fraud too, not just internet fraud. Things will get serious because it is a federal thing then... Follow up man, it is the best thing to do... Rocking the boat is fun sometimes, what makes this better, is your one right side of the law here. Mr. Smith is too. See what you can do!!!
Keep us informed!!!
If he was on the east coast, let me know... Email me personally I would enjoy talking off the board...
Do unto others as you want done to you!
If you pack it in, pack it out!
